 I'm still a month behind on the blog so 1 month ago we finally got enough snow for the kids to play in.  They have been trying to be patient and kept asking when we would get snow.  After all, we did tell them we were moving where we would get some.  They were beyond thrilled to get out and play.  We have enough of a hill on the side of our house that the kids can sled on too.  You can see in this picture that our furry baby was also happy to play in the snow.
 Chuck raced Carter down the hill
 Audrey wanted to go down the hill with Chuck
 Then she was ready to go down by herself and thought it was funny to race Carter
 They had so much fun!  The fence was put to the test a couple of times too.  You can really get going down the hill and it was the fence that put a stop to them a couple of times.
They didn't want to come in but it started to get dark.  It was fun watching them have a blast playing in the snow.

6 months old

 The end of Feb. our baby girl turned 6 months!  I swear it goes by faster with each one.  She continues to be such a good baby and goes with the flow.
 At six months she has 3 teeth and you can see 2 more on the way.  She sits by herself and is eating cereal and veggies well.  Sleep is hit or miss thanks to all the teeth.  She's discovering her voice but still loves to blow raspberries.  She's our smiley happy girl and we love her to pieces!
 I'm going to have to take pictures quickly from now on because she has discovered the sticker.
 Carter still loves to give her attention when he gets home from school.
She makes me smile every day :)

dream lite

 Audrey's bedroom is really big and the nightlight doesn't give off enough light for her at night.  Since being in the new house she's been asking for a lady bug dream lite.  We usually don't give in to the kids infomercial requests.  However, Audrey kept going to bed with her lamp on.  Every time we would turn it off she would tell us she wouldn't need her lamp and be scared if she had a dream lite.  She wore on us enough for us to give in and finally get her the silly thing.  She was thrilled and has no problem going to bed now.
 Audrey got some girly legos from Grandma Debbie and Mike for Christmas.  She's been having fun building her own creations and having me help her follow the directions to build the things in the book.
 It's been fun girl time while Carter is at school.
 While Audrey and I were building legos Evelyn was "flying"
And working on pushing up
Love my smiley baby!

Valentine's Day

 Here's our very belated Happy Valentine's post.  At least our cards arrived on time :)
The kids had fun doing this one
 Carter got to make his Valentine box for school for the first time.  In preschool and Kindergarten he made a bag at school.  I found him a foam kit that had a bunch of these mustaches in it.  The kids wanted to surprise daddy when he got home by wearing them.
 Daddy decided Evey needed to join in the fun too
Carter's finished product.  He did it all on his own and won best decorated.

Grandma & Grandpa visit

 The weekend of the 9th Grandma & Grandpa came to visit.  They haven't seen the kids since Evelyn was born so it was nice to have them visit and see the new house.  That weekend we went to the new Caterpillar museum.  Grandpa eneded up being the 40,000 visitor!  He got a goodie bag which included the hat Carter is wearing and we all got in free.
